        Glossarium Germanico-Latinum vocum obsoletarum primi et medii aevi, inprimis Bavaricarum (Band I. - alles !).

      München, Zangl, 1816. - Mit 2 lithographischen Tafeln, XLIV Seiten, 696 Spalten, roter Maroquinband der Zeit, 36 x 24 cm, Einband etwas berieben, unten am Rücken etwas gestaucht, innen sauber und frisch. Erklärung ungebräuchlicher, veralteter, entlegener und provinzieller Wendungen, teils. mit umfangreichen historischen Erläuterungen. "Was Westenrieder tatsächlich in seiner Publikation leistete, war eine Zusammenstellung von historischen Begriffen, auch aus der Wirtschafts– und Rechtsgeschichte, sowie von speziellen, in Bayern gebräuchlichen Termini, die in den von ihm selbst seit 1795 redigierten Bänden der Monumenta Boica vorkamen. Interessant und zugleich methodisch fragwürdig aber wird das Glossarium durch zusätzliche Aufnahme von ‘Provinzialismen’, wobei deren Auswahl eher zufälligen Charakters war" (Haefs).

        A treatise on the art of flying, by mechanical means;

      12mo., xviii (19) - 68pp., including two whole-page illustrations, the paper generally rather discoloured (i.e. browned) and with a light old waterstain running throughout, original printed card covers with woodcut emblematic vignettes on both covers, an old dampstain affecting lower part of upper cover. In spite of the minor faults just described, this is in fact a complete and pretty good copy of this remarkable little book. All these early editions have become rather rare: of this 1816 printing OCLC locates copies at only 5 libraries: Congress Un. of Delaware Purdue NY Hist. Soc. the American Univ. For historical commentary see Hodgson's History of Aeronautics in Great Britain, pp.349-354. Thomas Walker (who describes himself as a portrait painter of Hull) seems to be otherwise virtually unknown, the present essay being thus his only real memorial. "Walker's ideas on the practicability of flight as a means of aerial transportation were based (as stated on the title-page of his treatise) upon 'the natural principles by which birds are enabled to fly.' It is evident the flight of birds was a subject on which for many years he diligently read and observed - in his early life he dissected many birds and 'studied very minutely' the mechanism of their wings, tails and all the parts which they employ in flying. On the evidence of his reading which the author himself states would have enabled him to compile a large volume from all that had been said on the subject throughout the ages he avers 'that no one has ever understood the natural means of flying'' and he dismisses as 'childish whims' all attempts hitherto made with wings, whether of silk, leather, sheet iron, or other materials. Throughout the book he insists on the fact that granted the possession of the 'two greatest requisites ' for flying, viz, 'wings large enough' and 'sufficient power to work them' the weight of a bird - or of a man - is no obstacle to the art of flying. In respect of his own scheme for 'artificial flying' which, conceived on an analogous plan, was designed to overcome the difficulty of the insufficient strength of man's arms, and (as hitherto attempted) the unsupported weight of his body - he claimed, with that complete assurance which is rarely convincing, 'there cannot remain a doubt of success.' Walker admits that 'professional avocations and other circumstances' - which it is safe to assume includes lack of money - prevented him from making any such machine as he described on paper, and indeed the only experiment he himself records was confined to diminutive paper models. It should, however, be added that a contemporary -who as a resident of Barton-on-Humber doubtless wrote with some personal knowledge - stated that Walker made a machine, but 'was unable to raise himself from the platform on which the car was placed." (See Hodgson's History, pp.351-3). The two whole-page illustrations rather nicely show the inside of the flying machine with a seated pilot and a view of the flying machine from above, its component structures all identified. Walker is scornfully not "surprised" at the failure of the attempts of earlier would-be fliers. "When we take into consideration the different methods which are recorded to have been tried, we cannot be surprised that they have all failed, since, compared with what is contained in the following pages, they will obviously appear to be nothing more than mere whims and contrivances, all utterly destitute of the true nature and science of flying".

Engravings by Samuel Davis, an official in the East India Company and a colleague of Thomas and William Daniells, were prominent aquatinters of their time. A Rare and complete copy. Abbey Travel 312. Alexander Beatson was an agriculturalist and officer in the East India Company's service, and he served as governor of St. Helena, He wrote this book in an effort to alter contemporary views of the island's fertility and potentials. At the time experts believed that St Helena was barren and with no productive potential. After spending a several years on St. Helena, Beatson became convinced that its lack of production was due to flaws in technique rather than natural endowment. In making his case, Beatson describes the history of St Helena's geological formation, its soil and climate conditions, minerals and potential for vegetable production, as well as the qualities of the island that lend it to military purposes. Beatson's appointment as governor of St Helena was from 1808 to 1813. During this period, Beatson introduced a better system of cultivation and made many improvements to the island of St Helena.

        Adolphe, 1816, Edition Originale

      Treuttel, Wurtz et Colburn 1816 Après l'épopée des Cent - Jours et le triomphe des ultras, Benjamin Constant est contraint à l'exil. Il se rend à Londres et décide de publier en même temps à Londres et à Paris cet ouvrage écrit à Genève en 1806, au milieu des orages de la passion tumultueuse de l'auteur pour Germaine de Staël. On le considère cette oeuvrecomme le type même du roman d'analyse psychologique. L'auteur a publié cet ouvrage comme une « anecdote trouvée dans les papiers d'un inconnu », pour montrer à quelles sombres tragédies peut conduire la sécheresse de c?"ur. Sous cette forme, qui lui permet de paraître détaché de ses propres passions d'homme de son temps, ce partisan tenace des libertés constitutionnelles a pu confesser une désillusion amoureuse et défendre ses idées politiques avec une ferveur accrue . Trois éditions parurent à la même date : une appelée communément « édition de Londres », et deux éditions de Paris portant deux adresses différentes. « Toutes trois sont rares et très recherchées » écrit Clouzot. La première édition est celle de Colburn, en association avec Treuttel et Würtz à Paris, annoncée le 6 juin dans le ?Morning Chronicle'. Elle est rarissime (trois exemplaires connus dans les bibliothèques publiques : la British Library, Harvard et la Taylorian Institution à Oxford). La B.n.F. ne la possède pas, mais elle a la première édition parisienne . Cette édition que je vends a été imprimée par Crapelet d'après les épreuves de l'édition anglaise. L'éditeur français est placé avant son confrère londonien à l'adresse et la mention d'imprimeur est, bien entendu, différente. (Clouzot, 70 - 71 ; Carteret, I, 178 - 179 ; Talvart, III, 213 a; Rahir, Bibliothèque de l'amateur, 377 ; Vicaire, II, 932). Reliure demi cuir d' époque dans un état assez bon avec un dos lisse orné d' une pièce de titre gravée à l' or fin et des plats marbrés, intérieur en assez bon état, format in 12, 228 pages.

        Plan, coupe, élévation et détails du nouveau marché St-Germain.

      chez l'Auteur et Dussilon, de l'Imprimerie de Firmin Didot, A Paris 1816 - In-folio de (5)-10 pp., 11 planches, cartonnage bleu de l'époque. Deux vignettes dessinées par Lusson et 11 planches d'architecture gravées par Lusson ou Devilliers. La foire Saint-Germain, dont les origines remontent au Moyen Age et qui fut le théâtre de nombreux troubles sous l'Ancien Régime, après avoir décliné durant la Révolution, fut supprimée en 1806. Une partie de son terrain fut affecté au marché Saint-Germain actuel qui fut reconstruit de 1813 à 1819. Le marché Saint-Germain apparut aux contemporains comme « le plus beau de Paris » (Marlet, Nouveau tableau de Paris). « L'amplitude du plan, le fini, le luxe même apportés aux détails tels que la fontaine centrale et les grilles, expliquent sans doute que les travaux se soient prolongés au moins jusqu'à la fin de 1819, alors que certaines parties étaient déjà mises en service » (Bertier de Sauvigny, Nouvelle histoire de Paris, La Restauration, pp. 111-112).

Select Views of London; with Historical and Descriptive Sketches of Some of the Most Interesting of Its Public Buildings. Compiled and Arranged by John B. Papworth, Architect. London: Printed for R. Ackermann by J. Diggens, 1816.First edition, first issue, with Papworth’s name on the title-page. Large octavo (9 7/8 x 7 1/8 inches; 250 x 180 mm.).

Covers decoratively bordered in gilt, smooth spine elaborately tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board-edges and wide gilt decorated turn-ins surrounding a gilt decorated border of green morocco which in turn surrounds a gilt bordered paste-down of tree calf, marbled endleaves, all edges gilt. A little light offsetting from the plates to the text only. A wonderful and early copy in a fine 'Regency' binding.According to Abbey, "copies exist without the name of Papworth on the title-page, but no evidence can be adduced regarding priority of issue. Copies carrying Papworth's name are somewhat scarcer than those without" (Abbey, Scenery). "His [Papworth] select Views of London, containing seventy-six unsigned plates to which he wrote the text, is a very interesting record of past London, with representations of City churches and other topographical features now no longer in existence. The preface opens with the following sententious introduction: "The Metropolis of a country so distinguished for its opulence, for the munificence of its public bodies, and the liberality of its individuals, must be interesting in all its features. The portraits of its palaces, churches, public buildings, and squares, are useful commentaries of its history --- they present documents of our national character, and record the progressive advancement of our commerce, science and arts."

        LA MORT D'ARTHUR The Most Ancient and Famous History of the Renowned Prince Arthur, and the Knights of the Round Table

      London: R. Wilks, 1816. Hardcover. Very Good/No jacket as issued. Bound in full, 19th century leather with gilt spine decorations, gilt decorations to the boards, leather spine labels and marbled endpapers. Each volume contains an engraved frontispiece and vignette title page. In addition, vol.1 contains the folding plate of the Round Table. The work is illustrated as follows: vol.1) engraved frontispiece of the death of Sir Lancelot; vignette title page of the Lady of the Lake offering Arthur the sword; and the fold-out plate depicting Arthur and his knights at the Round Table; vol.2) engraved frontispiece of Sir Tristram & Isolde; vignette title page of the battle of Sir Tristram and Sir Lancelot; and vol.3) engraved frontispiece of Arthur drawing the sword from the stone; and vignette title page of Sir Percival fighting the 'serpent.' The printed title pages, in each volume, are those of the 1634 edition. This is a very good, handsome set. This is an important edition of Sir Thomas Malory's compilation of French and English Arthurian romances. It marks the start of modern interest in Arthuriana. First published in 1485 by William Caxton, Le Morte d'Arthur is the birthplace and source for most subsequent Arthurian literature including T.H. White's The Once and Future King, Tennyson's Idylls of the King, and Steinbeck's The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights. The 1485 Caxton edition was followed by editions in 1498, 1529, 1557 and 1634. No further editions were printed until two competing editions were issued in 1816, of which this is one. 1816 stated. 24mo; 5 in. tall. In three volumes (326, 381 & 377 pp.). Some professional work was done to the spines (vol.1 with head and foot chips filled in); some light scuffing to the boards; some wear at the corners; some light foxing to the plates. The set is housed in a clamshell box, constructed by NYS binder Jack Fitterer. The box is done in leather & cloth with gilt lines and a striking image of Excalibur (given by the Lady of the Lake to Arthur) held by a hand rising from the water. Also imprinted are the title 'Prince Arthur' and the date '1816'. This is a scarce and important set protected by a lovely clamshell box!" Lupack, scholar.

La Danse Macabre consists of the dead or personified Death summoning representatives from all walks of life to dance along to the grave, typically with a Pope, an Emperor, a King, a child, and a laborer. They were produced to remind people of the fragility of their lives and how vain were the glories of earthly life. Its origins are postulated from illustrated sermon texts; the earliest recorded visual scheme was a now-lost mural in the Saints Innocents Cemetery in Paris dating from 1424 to 1425.

      Hamburg: Chez Perthes & Besser ("Se vend à St. Petersbourg chez Pluchart, à Londres chez T. Boosey, à Paris chez Treuttel & Wurtz.") 1816 - Octavo (20.5 x 13 cm). Later quarter imitation leather binding; [3], 4-230, [3], 234-353, [2] pp. [1] map and 4 engraved vignettes in the text (signed S. D. Bendixen and F. A. de la Belle); errata page. Inventory stamp of the Gatchina Palace Library (Gatchinskii dvorets); half title signed "Casimir". This copy lacks the folding map of the Caucasus. Edges of boards lightly rubbed, light stains to front endpapers, p. 163 with neat tape repair, a few light stains/foxing throughout, old description affixed to front free end paper; two pages with tiny hole, one marginal annotation in pencil. This account of Frederika Afanas'eva von Freygang’s (nee Kudriavskaia) journey to the Caucasus in the years 1811-1812 is one of the earliest such accounts by a Russian woman writer. The correspondence sent by Frederika to her husband (then head of a military command to the Transcaucasus region during the latter stages of the Russo-Persian War of 1804-1813) chronicles her arduous journey through the Russian steppe and the main range of the Caucasus Mountains with her three children. The descriptive passages of the people, customs, and geography encountered along the way are rendered in the flowing French idiom of the Russian aristocracy and represent a valuable record of the early era of Russian colonial expansion in the region. Freygang’s impressions and descriptions were of undoubted importance to the military administration of the time and to the aristocratic readership, as the provenance of this copy illustrates (it stems from the Imperial collection of the Gatchina Palace Library). An important work from an early nineteenth-century female author. The second part of the book, by Frederika Freygang’s husband Wilhelm, is a historico-political account of the Transcaucasus region compiled from notes taken in the field. Freygang’s military sorties took him to the territories of the present day nations of Georgia, Armenia, Iran, and Azerbaijan, and his account of these lands, then mostly under the administration of the Persian Empire, is an early exemplar of the colonial and orientalist works that would come into vogue with the reading public in the following decades. Together an early and important work with broad anthropological and historical interest. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Alastor; or, the Spirit of Solitude: and Other Poems

      vi, [2], 101 pp., one blank leaf. 8vo, orig. grey boards (spine with a small defect), orig. printed paper label on spine, edition binder's embossed stamp on inside front cover "J:Syrett," uncut. London: Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, et al., 1816. First edition, and a splendid copy in original boards, of Shelley's first major achievement; this copy bears on the free front endpaper the ownership signature -- "Tighe" -- of what is almost certainly George William Tighe (1776-1837), the common-law husband of Margaret King, Lady Mount Cashell. The Shelleys moved to Pisa at the suggestion of Lady Mount Cashell (at that time living with Tighe as "Mrs. Mason"), a former pupil of Mary Wollstonecraft. Tighe and "Mrs. Mason" had settled in Pisa where she studied medicine with Andrea Vaccá Berlinghieri at the city's university. Tighe was an agriculturalist and provided Shelley with information on chemistry, biology, and statistics. In 1821, Tighe became involved in the attempts of Claire Clairmont, Mary Shelley's step-sister, to remove her daughter by Byron from a convent in Ravenna. Tighe made a secret trip to Ravenna and Bagnacavallo to find out what he could about the convent and Allegra's treatment there. Claire Clairmont wrote in her journal on 21 April 1821 that she had dreamt that G.W. Tighe had fetched Allegra back from Bagnacavallo; years later -- sometime between 1869 and her death in 1879 -- she told E.J. Trelawny that Tighe had gone to fetch Allegra but as McAleer says, "Tatty's visit may have grown entirely out of the dream Claire had on April 21 -- his passport records no such trip."-Mc Aleer, Sensitive Plant, p. 162. Certainly Claire Clairmont later thought of G.W. Tighe as a protector and brave and courteous gentleman. This copy comes from the family library descending from Lady Mount Cashell, which has close Shelley connections. On page 97, line 2, the first word "And" has been crossed out in ink. There is a modern slip of paper laid-in there with a note "Shelley." We believe the person who inserted the note was someone in the position to know. Fine condition. Preserved in a box. .

The expedition was sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. Commanded by Nicolas Baudin, the expedition left France in 1800 and sailed via Mauritius to the Australian coast in the region of Cape Leeuwin, arriving in May 1801. Peron sailed as naturalist on the expedition and Freycinet as cartographer. The vessels, Geographe and Naturaliste, sailed north from Cape Leeuwin. The expedition surveyed the coast and made observations on the natural history and inhabitants, until they crossed to Timor. After three months the two ships set out for Tasmania, the party continuing to make detailed surveys, and went on to Sydney. They then undertook a complete survey of the southern coast and an examination of the northern coast before returning to Mauritius where, near the end of 1803, Baudin died. It was a celebrated voyage which brought back to France the most important collection of natural history specimens in the history of the French Museum, as well as a wealth of geographical and other information. The narrative of the expedition was begun by Peron, and completed by Freycinet after Peron's death. A tacit agreement between Peron and Freycinet, both of whom disliked Baudin, kept the commander's name mostly absent from the present official account of the expedition. Flinders completed his survey of the Australian coast before Baudin, but his imprisonment by the French in Mauritius for seven years resulted in the French exploration account being published first. Consequently, the Baudin-Freycinet narrative includes the first complete and fully detailed map of the Australian continent. It is justly one of the most famous depictions of Australia ever produced, with virtually the entire southern coast labeled "Terre Napolean," indicating possible French colonial ambitions. The Atlas Historique contains a group of beautiful color plates, mostly of natural history specimens, many of which depict what the French saw during their important visit to Tasmania. In 1824, a revised second edition of the narrative was published containing 23 additional plates (including four new portraits of aborigines), as well as two plates of engraved sheet music, being the earliest notation of any indigenous Australian music and a redering of the Abortiginal cooee call. Unusually, the present set of the first edition is bound with these additional plates as extra-illustrations, as well as an additional inlaid portrait of Baudin after Joseph Jauffret stipple engraved by Mecou.
